Anyone ever used CopyCat Upholstery in Florida? I need to have 6 of my seat cushions redone, and the local guys want $1800 - $2000. That includes taking the old vinyl off and re-installing the new vinyl. I've already removed the cushions from the boat.

CopyCat gave me a quote of $715. All I need to do is remove the vinyl, mail them the old ones and they mails me the new ones. I install over the old plywood and padding. It seems worth it for over $1000 in savings.

Nope. I have a cushion that needs to get resewn this spring and will have it done when I get my new boat cover. I will be going on a road trip/ mini vacation.

That seems really pricey to me.

What is the cost to ship to FL?

Almost $300 a cushion locally seems very high

Shipping should be under $50.

"Almost $300 a cushion locally seems very high"

Bob:
Are you sure you got quotes based on the exactly the same material and service? Maybe the local guys quoted based on the boat coming in, removal of the cushions, strip and replace foam, make and install new upholstery, re-install cushions. Also, be sure your quote includes fabric specifications (brand, weight, "marine", etc.) for quality marine vinyl fabric.

What about sending them 1 as a test to see how they do?
